Construction of Bridget Not Yet Commenced���Company in Open
Defiance of Railway Oommiasion.
Last September, as a result of an energetic campaign by Alderman Stevens, the Railway Commission ordered the 6. N. Railway
Company to file plans within one month providing for bridges over
their cut at Woodland Drive. Broadway and Templeton Drive, and
that the structures be "completed*'.within six months, which would
be March 7th next.
The Railway Company filed the plans, but have taken no* steps
towards the construction of the bridges, exeept a little timber at
Woodland Drive. It is clear that they purpose openly defying
both the city and the Railway Commission. This insufferable in-
solance by a foreign corporation to the city and the Dominion authorities, is going altogether too far. This Company has received
many favors from this city and from the Government, and we
should receive more consideration at their hands. These bridges
are badly needed NOW, and in ashort time the spring work will
be opened up and we will be without transportation facilities.
Our purpose in getting the order set at "six months" was to
avoid the delay in our summer's work, which is now being made
impossible by the impertinence pf this arrogant Railway Company.
Most of the concessions the ��Citj\ of Vancouver received from
"Jim Hill" re False Creek are verbal, and if he defies the Railway
Commission's orders, what will he do with verbal promises? We
have repeatedly pointed out this tendency to break faith on the part
of the Great Northern, and it is about time the public realized it
and treated this Company with "cast-iron courtesy."
The Police Commissioners are asking for-fifty new "officers.
That we need them goes without question. BUT we require not
^ only more men, but a Better System of secret service. - * -
r 'As far* as our force is concerned, it is up to the mark in discip-
lipei and appearance. The, patrol system is very creditable, but as
far as we are able to learn, the secret service department has itievcr
had a chande. We have no*/, trained ^Jneiit in connection with it.
They are usually, chosen rom/thei ran'skV ot\ the patrolmen. -We
need a trained detective force; We need a more effective system'
of keeping track of criminals.!     ,   \ ; ,

Special Article Written for $The Call.^���History of
How Quebec  got, lH3r, 3:hiiil Privileges.^A -
And   What   They Really Have. ,
There is a surprising ignorance, even amongst comparatively well-
educated men, regarding the manner in which the French race and the Roman
Catholic Church obtained their special, privileges in the Dominion of Canada.
This ignorance can, perhaps, be excused on two grounds. One is that our
ordinary school histories' do not deal to/any extent with the question, and the
other is that officials of the Roman Catholic Church and prominent,speakers
belonging to the French race have for.V htttbber of, years kept reiterating the
statement that these special privilegesjAfere^obtained by/traty right; 'careless
and indifferent Protestants/without taking,the trouble to investigate, have
accepted the statement at its face value,' add believed it to be correct. "The
purpose of these articles is trf'deatfwiuY the -question from an historical standpoint, and by producing the facts', "sh6w how these special privileges were
really secured. The first article will deal with the' Treaty, of Paris of 1763,
as that was the treaty which terminated the Wr between France and Englarid,
and which stated 'the terms upon whicfy Canada was surrendered to" the
British Crown. ' '     '   '/ \ 7'\',',( '    <     ���   's^\:'<.
;,        -THE TREATY OF; PARIS OF 1763., H  ,
The first .time'the British came in'contact Iwith the, demands of-the
Church of Rome for exclusive treatment was at the capitulation;,of ^Quebec,
after7 Wolfe's victory.    The commanding "officer, in-consenting^to' surrender^
made_a^re^ues��'Jbat'tW^be -rio^ in'terts^cetwith religion. ?jJ^ms"<reply>;
datedt September 18th,  17597 General rToZM^n^sl^^K^^fyi
. "The free exercise of ihe Romatt'Caiholicr religion is grenied^Mkitfise
safeguards to all religious persons; as ire// as to the bishop, who.shall be at
liberty to come and exercise, freely and with decency, the functions of his
office, whenever he shall thin\ proper^ until the possession of Canada shall
' have been decided between their Britannic and most Christian majesties." '
.3 The French commander simply asked for assurance of protection, and
it was granted. The article has no bearing on the standing of the Church. It
simply concedes what any humane officer would grant, and leaves the status of
the Church to be decided by treaty between England and France. In I 763
there was a meeting of representatives of Austria and Prussia of Britain and
France to draw up a treaty of peace. When the article regarding leligion
was reached in the treaty that concerned Canada, the French, ministers asked
that it read as follows: " ^
"His Britannic Majesty on his sid< agrees to grant the liberty of the
Catholic religion to the inhabitants of Criada; he will consequently give the
most effectual orders that his new Cathoic subjects may profess the worship
of, their religion according to the rites of the Roman Church, as they have
done.*'' ,         ____'_	
The British representatives would pot consent. They demanded thai
the words, "as they have done," be struct out. The French ministers pled in
vain for their retntion. Thy were scorejd out. Fearful even then that the
article might be construed into Britain's 'agreeing to continue the Church of
Rome on the status it had under France, they insisted on adding the words,
"so far as the laws of Great Britain pemii." After some demur, the Frcncl
finding it impossible to get the Englishmen to recede, agreed, and the article
as confirmed read:
"His Britannic Majesty agrees lo grant the liberty of the Catholic religion
lo the inhabitants of Canada; he will, consequently, give the most efectuc
orders that his new Roman Catholic subjects may profess the worship of theii
religion, according lo the riles of the Roman Church, as far as the laws o,
Gfcai Britain permit." .   Y"
The meaning of the article is obvious. YWhatever privileges Catholic?
were to enjoy, were lo be measured by British law and not by French. The
English commissioners were resolute in having it fully understood that the
subjects whom France was abandoning were to come under the rule of Britain
divested entirely of everything that pertained to their old status, and to thai
end insisted on the adoption of this additional article:
"The King of France cedes and guarantees to his Britannic M"iesly, in
full right, Canada and Us dependencies; and makes over the whole in the
most ample mnnner and form, ivithout restriction and without any liberty to
depart from the said cession and guarantee.^;- k^
The conveyance of Carada was thus made .wil^put a single reservation
or condition jn favor of the inhabitants, the French King abandoning his late
subjects to the conqueror with brutal .indifference. In the entire trealv there
irYnot a single word about the French language, French laws, or Roman
Catholic Separate Schools. For the prevailing impression, that the Treaty of
Paris placed the French-Canadians and Roman Catholic on a different plane
from other British subjects by preserving to them certain distinctive privileges,
there is ro foundation. That such a notion exists is due solely to the assertions
of those whose interest it is to have it believed; but the fact is that whatever
'"s found exceptional with regard to special; privileges, rests not upon treaty
rights, and whoever says the contrary, asserts what he cannot prove.
The ; rraty wasSsigred in February, I 76 Viand the following October
King Georpe issued a proclamation defining
prescribing how it was7 to be governed and
could rely. So soon as military rule could v ith safety be suoerseded Canada
was to be erected into a Province, similar to the thirteen colonies to the south
of it, and have an assembly representative f the people, who would maX*
laws and otherwise provide for its governm nt. Until such time,0 the royal
proclamation went on to declare:
"All persons inhabiting in, or resorting :o
in our royal protection for the enjoyment o
realm of England."
The reclamation instructs the govern* to constitute courts for trying
cases, both civil and criminal, as near as rjay be agreeable to the Jaws of
England. There is not a work in the procKtation modifying this assurance
of English law to whoevrr should settle in Canada, and not aw brd of any
exception in favor of the French-Canadians.    This proclamation of the King

inimical to Canada as a whole and to British Columbia in particular,
ai'ui that we urge the opposition leaders?,at Ottawa to spare no effort
to have the question submitted to tlie people."
Alderman Stevens .supported his motion in a short speech, in
which lie pointed out that the traditions of the Conservative.partyY.
were opposed to any Mich action as that proposed in the treaties
> ard that never since ]8$6 had such an opportunity faced the Cori-7;
servatives of Canada to seize aud control the destinies of the-.po-;Y
minion.    Imperialism and tariff reform was a platform and policy^
whicii. if adopted by the party, would sweep the Dominion from--,;,
end to end.    He further drew attention to the prosperity ^and der-Y
velopment of Canada as a result of the national policy of Sir Johnv
A    MaeDnnnlri. which policy  had largely   been  continued  by the,,
present Laurier administration, and now was the time for those wlio^
believed in Canada's future to act.   He urged that public meetings; -
be_held-to discuss the question.- ~i_
The resolution carried unanimously.
There was an interesting test of strength iu Ontario on the 2nd
of January of this year 1911. The results are suggestive and ominous
of v hat i5- in store for the near future.
lo no less than 84 municipalities, iu Ontario, there was voting
on Loral Option.   The results are easily placed before the public.     \
Twenty-six of these municipalities cut off licensing by carrying-
Local Option. This cut out (>���> licenses. In 30 municipalities there
were maiorities in favor of Local^ Option, but the three-fifths clause*
������prevented"success.to. the temperance people. In 25 out of the 847
miinicipnlities Local Option was defeated. This is most encouraging-
to the temperance workers, and indicates the final triumph of their;
cause!  - 7     ������'-���. -t. Y -���. ' : ���       '     -   ���'     ....
.in the total vote, in those places, where the voting took place,.,
the        '      <i " ��ior.-1v7in Tavor of Local Option amounted to 5,274. ,
The liquor interests in Ontario had an opportunity of making a
test in no less than J34'municipalities.for'the overthrow of Local'
Option, but they made test in only three cases, and were overwhelmed '
in every one of these.,   Thus ihe good'cause'is growing in Ontario,. .

carry Prohibition throughout the whole Province. .:" 7

The above would well express the,method of Evangelist Herbert
TPooth, who is holding a series of special services in the Mount
Pleasant.Methodist Church. Mr. Booth; is a gifted "actor.M had he
chosen the stage as his field of ^action he would have been a second
"Henry Irving." As it is. he'throws all his abilities in that line
into his work as an evangelist.
The wish is often expressed by many cultured persons, that it
Avould be well if, the stage could be used for the dissemination of
matters ethical and moral, and even the religious. This wish is
fulfilled in Herbert Booth. Onii has but to forget that he is in a
church and give reign to his imagination, to find himself beholding
a dramatic presentation of the gospel by "one of the best actors of
the day, in the person of Herbert Booth. It is well worth while to
hear him and study his method of presentation. His reading of the
Scriptures is also good. He explains as he proceeds, and with a
fine sense of the poetic, turns the reading of a simple passage into

The proclamation declared Canada to be  English and nothing but English. There is not even reservation of the French  tenure of land. In the direction, a, to selling lands to settlers, and o^g ants  to soldiers and sailors who had served in the late war. it is specfied that the  land shall be conveyed on the same terms as exist in other British colonies.  Thi, proclamation, issued a few months after the treaty of P>ns was signed,  recognize, in no way that the French-Canadians were to have any privileges  other than those that pertained to them as British subjects. In .this the������: was  no disappointment to the French-Canadians. Judge Hey. the first Chiel  Justice of Quebec under English rule, in his evidence before the House ot  Commons in 1774. testified that at the conquest the French-Canadians,  "neither expected to retain their religion nor their laws, and looked upon them-  ulves a* a ruined and abandoned people. The general expectation among  th inhabitants vat that Kmg George would be as absolute as their late royal  matter;and order them to be Protestants"  The lenity with which they were treated was confirmed by Quebec's first  Attorney-General; Maseres, in the following remarkable statement:     I am of  - "   opinion," he said. "*ilh General Amherst, that if Jhe pnestshad been given  their Ming (that is, pensioned) arnfthw places had been supplied by Protest-  **������*  ants, the French-Canadian* woul& have been satisfied.  General Murray, on becoming Canada's first civil governor, received  instructions from the Secretary of State, Earl Egremont. to su*fc hun> He  was told (August 13th, 1763) to guard against attempts by the FrencWCov-  ernment through the priests to keep the habitants in expectation of resumption  of the rule of Louis.   Here are the Earl's words: -  "His Majesty has reason to suspect that the French may be disposed  to avail themselves of the liberty of the Catholic religion granted to the mhab-.  Hants, to keep up their connection with France, and to induce them to join  for the recovery of the country. The priests, therefore, mwt be narrowly  watched, and any who meddle in civil matters be removed. Whilst there ������ no  thought of restraining the new subjects in the exercise of their religion according to the rites of the Romish Church, the condition is, as far as the laws of  Great Britain permit, which, can only admit of toleration, the matter bang  clearly understood -in fie negotiation for the definitive treaty of peace, the  French ministers proposing to insert the words, 'comme ci devant, (ok they  have done), and did not give up the point until they were plainly toli that  it would be deceiving them to insert these words. You are, however, tojavoid  everything that can give hie least unnecessary alarm or disgust to thi new  subjects. The greatest care must be used against the priest, Le Lputre,  should he return to Canada, where he is not to be allowed to remain, and\every  priest coming to-Canada must appear before_^e_gpvernpr for ejcam^ation  and must take the oath of allegiance.**  This is the evidence of a nobleman who was present while the treat was  being negotiated, and i������ additional evidence as to what was the-obyct in  adding the clause. "As far as the laws of Great Britain permit. Britain  was asked to continue the status of the priest as it had been under France,  and Britain said no. and added nine words to the article which decisively  deprived the priests of their powers under French rule, and placed, them,  under the authority of the leva of rBitain. Tenjfears after the treaty was  ratified, when the Quebec A������-t was being contemplated, the law officer of the  House, Wedderburn. aftervards Lord Chancellor, gave this written opinion  on the article: . ,  "This qualification (r^ far at the laws of Great Britain permit) renders  the article of so little eft- t. from the severity with which, thuogh seldom  executed, the laws of Errand are armed against the exercise of the Roman  Catholic religion, that tu- French-Canadian must depend more upon the  begnignity and wisdom of your Majesty's government for the protection of  his religious rights than ������'^->n the provisions of the treaty."  In December. 1763, General Murray received further instructions as  to liow he was to carr��������� Yki the affairs of the colony. The following were the  directions he was to follow in ecclesiastical affairs: =.  TWO���������West. Call v 7"     '/  concluded at Paris the tenth day of February, 1763, to grant the liberty of the  Catholic religion to the inhabitants of Canada, and that we will consequently  give the most precise and most effectual order, that our new Roman Catholic  subjects in that Province may profess the worship of their religion, according to  the rites of the Roman Church, as far as the laws of Great Britain permit; it  is merefore our will and pleasure,, that you do, in all things regarding the  said inhabitants, conform with great exactness to the stipulations of the said  treaty in this .respect ,   .

These are the facts of the treaty: (1) The French KingIsked that  the article of the treaty regarding religion should read so as to leave the  priests their old status.    (2)  This the British not only refused, but inserted  words to make it clear that the priests would only have the status allowed by  the English laws then in force. (3) To make the matter more definite, an  article was included in the treaty declaring that the French King made over  his subjects in Canada without restriction. (4) Following the treaty. King  George issued a proclamation declaring English law to be the law of Quebec.  (5) By not exacting tithes or dues by law, as they had done under the old  regime, the priests recognized the fact that their status had been changed, and  that they were now governed by English instead of French law. (6) ,The  instructions to the first governor were that he was not to permit any ecclesiastical  jurisdiction of Rome in the Province, and he was told that it was the intention of the English Government to make the Church of England the Established Church.  The victory of Wolfe on the Plains of Abraham in 1759 decided the  destiny of Canada. Henceforth, it was to be a British possession, and was to  come under British rule. The treaty by which it formally came into the  hands of the British people.was .the Treaty of Paris of 1763.and if any  special rights' or privileges were retained to the French race or the Roman  Catholic Church by treaty right, the fact would be mentioned in the terms of  this treaty. A thorough examination, however, of the terms of surrender, die  final treaty of peace, and the instructions of die, King and die Secretary of  State to die first Governor, show conclusively that there were no special privileges of any kind granted either to the French-Canadians or to die Roman  Catholic Church.  Positive and, continued assertion has gone a long way with people too  indolent-or too careless tg inquire whether such assertion has any foundation  in" fact For generation, the people of Canada have been listening to solemn  assurances that the Treaty of Paris secured to Quebec and the Roman Catholic  Church peculiar privileges; although reference to the articles of the treaty,  even without considering the attending circumstances under which it was  formulated, or the interpretation placed upon it by the governors and officials  who had to carry die article into practice, would ������how that they are falae-  hoods;  We intend to show in subsequent articles how these special privileges  were obtained, and our article next week will deal with die Quebec Act of  1774.

WOMAN.;  Slowly but ������������������surely/the' walls of Ihe  fortress of male monopoly are being  undermined, for we hear of rdvance  along the line of poii'ical emancipation of woman . in conservative old  England, that is astonishing to say the  least. There are now three lady  mayors, the first, being Mrs. Garrett  Anderson, elected mayor of EUleburgh,  who discharged her duties with dignity  and success, which secured her re-election in 1909.. Since then Brecon and  Oldham have followed the wise precedence,.and the-old-Welsh municipality  of Brecow is now presided over by an  unmarried lady, the,; daughter of a  Welsh rector, and an anient temperance and moral reformer. It is evident  that the Welsh people know a gocd  thing when they see tt. Then to be  mayor in an,industrial and prbgressrve  community like Oldham is no s,mall  thing, and this great responsibility  rests now upon a grand woman of  -sixty^ight years of age, Mrs. Lees,  who this year has been elected to tbe  mayoral chair.   Time brings many sur.  and then perhaps woman may be recognized, inside and outside -of four wallr.

Although the reciprocity negotia  tionsjit Washington are over, and in-  terest in the' subject is not so much  to the fore as it was some weeks ago,  it hardly seems out of place to call  attention to some of the prophecies  which were made at the banquet of  the Canadian Manufacturers' Associa  tion here, when some of the bes ���������  known men of the country sat down tc  dine together. That there are subjects  of agitation in the country was evident from the tone of the speeches.  :Hon. Mr. Lemieux, Mr;-.RYE. Borden,  Sir E. B.

Mr. King will ask for cast iron  legislation setting an absolute ban oa  the sale of cocaine in the Dominion o������  Canada except for medical  purposes^  and providing heavy punishment for  violators of the law.

VII'  Sixty   thousand  'Bibles   have   been  placed in the bedrooms ot hotels in the  United States and .Canada by the "Gideons."   This organization is composed  of Christian commercial travelers of  America, and tbey aim to provide by  this broadcast sowing of the Word for  the spiritual welfare of those who like  ' theniselyes spend  so many' hours  in  the unVomelike atmosphere of a hotel  bedroom. , Proprietors every where are  said to encourage the plan.   A Chicago  paper reports one landlady as giving  testimony  curiously  contradictory  to  that offered by one of her class in New  ��������� York who did not regret giving up her  .' house because it seemed to have been  run in the interests of the gas company.   As we learn from "The Evan  gelical Messenger"  (Cleveland),  here  is,what "the prlprletor ofa-little hotel  west of the Mississippi" writes:  "The change I noticed first after tbe  Bibles Were placed in the bedrooms oi  , my hotel was that my electric light  a bill doubled.   These men get hold of  ' "a Bible, read the references you cite,  and then are not satisfied.    They go  on Reading and my light bill goes on  getting bigger.   But I don't care in the  ' least.    I would just as soon have it  get bjgger yet if Eible reading is responsible for the Increase."  "The Evangelical Messenger" has accumulated other testimony to the value  of this act of the Gideons:  "A "United States Senator's thoughts  -,-and.memorjes^were so stirred from the  reading of one of these Bibies~iri aTHor  tel, as to.move him to send a check  for .$50 to aid in the distribution of  Bibles under this plan, confessing in  H an accompanying note that the reading of that Bible in the hotel had led  bis 'thoughts back Mnto channels  ���������where they had not been for manj  years.' We cite these instances as an  indication of the promise and possibili  ties of the Bible scheme of tbe Gide  -ons."  The following lines are pasted with  in the cover of each volume:  "This holy book, whose leaves dis  play the Life, the Light, the Truth, and  tthe Way, is placed in this room b>  tho  Gideons,  the  Christian  Commercial Travelers' Association of America  aided by the    churches    and-   Young  Men's  Christian   Association   of  thi*  city, with the hope that,by.means oi  this book many may be brought tc  know the love of Christ which passetb  knowledge.

HOME-MAKING  PLANS  (By Jeannete N. Phillips.)  Setting up a new home calls for no  A values^ no little foresight in regard  to the resultant forces that are to be  brought together in the home���������purse  limitations,  physical  needs   set  over  i against flesh and blood, human life,  \ human happiness.  The right ideal of a home is that  it be a place in which the primary  I, duty is not to work, or any wise unnecessary     sacrifice���������waste���������strength  or life, but that it be a place in which  lit is possible for mother and father  and all to live at their best physically,  mentally,   morally,   spiritually.     The  ', house becomes an agency   in   home-  making only when it and its furnishings serve human.needs.  Though the 'home-maker is not to  be a slave, she must be a real and  able manager, conscious of the responsibilities that rest upon her and  ever equal to the needs of the day.  These,7 rightly  accepted- and   rightly  met,, need not be a burden, for, ln  BpiteOf much work and many cares,  in spite of the function of motherhood, a woman can meet her home-  making tasks and responsibilities as a  conqueror if'' she sets up the home  with a determination not to let the  demon of drudging, straining work  rule her life; not to let the appeal  of mere things sound louder in her  ears than the call of her own right  to life, liberty and the pursuit of  happiness.  Without doing any violence to one's  love of the artistic and of making a  good appearance, the once who would  establish her household on a solid  foundation must consider her natural  physical limitations > very carefully���������  remember that muscles will curve and  stiffen, eyes and cheeks will fade,  nerves grow weak and unreasonably  irritable if not fairly treated. In doing this one need not? plan to be  ,merely self-indulgent, only scientifically sensible. It Is far wiser to invest  money in labor-saving fittings and  furnishings at the outset than to invest* a woman's muscles and nerves  in doing without what she ought to  have; r and a sweet, serene, cheery  face, a trig, sprightly figure adorn  dining-room and parlor far more truly  than^do expensive furniture and bric-  a-brac.  The kitchen, with its adjoining,  workrooms, should have most careful  consideration,' should, be fitted ' and  furnished on the principle that it is a  laboratory chemist  or  biologist;    its  contents should be substantial, made  with reference to easy cleaning, and  should be such that   time,   strength  ~*rps, may not be wasted, that comfort and hygiene are not overlooked,  that doing work may ever be kept  subordinate to the purposes of the  work, that mind and muscle, not  muscle alone, may be pitted against  every day's requirements. Kitchen  ventilation is vitally important. One  medical teacher insists that tuberculosis is as truly a "kitchen disease" as it is a tenement district disease. Good light and sunshine are  no less essential. If by any means  possible, a "lift" that runs from cellar to attic should open into the kitchen or some nearby room.  Going on from the kitchen, the  same practical, really scientific principle may be applied in furnishing  other parts of the house. A'generous  supply of first class cleaning tools,  plain,- lightweight furniture1 that is  easily dusted, and that moves on castors; weights and pulleys to life the  windows; easily laundered draperies  and covers, or those that do not need  laundering; just a reasonable supply  of bric-a-brac ��������� such arrangements  can save much muscle strain and  muclfTbought and care "in the long  run."  'Going &till further, the tone of the  house should be such that the queen  of the home realm and all her dear  subjects may breath aesthetic comfort, peace, a > sense of "at-homeness"  into the deepest depths of their lives.  If natural human cravings for beautiful form, for light and color are rationally supplied, the life is elevated,  sweetened . becomes a force for good.  One essential to securing all this is  |4^>*4^H~X^^4^������M^^^4������K'������*������ ������H^^^:~H^K^������:<^^H^K~>W<*:"X' 4~>^:~X^K'^H-:������H-X������'X������>^^^  m  The Royal Drug Go., Ltd.  ll PRESCRIPTION DRUGGISTS  I850 PARK DRIVe PHONE 6167  COR. 3rd AVENUE, EAST  NIGHT PHONE R2I48  SPECIALS  ���������     ���������'                    .                  0     . ���������    ���������                         _.         ������������������<���������'..

SCHOOL TEACHERS SCARCE  DECLARES QUEBEC'S PREMIER  Anarchist Hunt Reaches Canada���������  Value of Canadian Parole System-  Canada's Morgan Groupe.  (From Our' Own Correspondent)  MONTREAL.���������Tbe dearth of school  .eachers, ever a live topic in the rural  districts of the country, bids fair to  jecome even more acute in the #near  ruture on account of the legislation  ioreshadowed by Sir Lomer Gouin at  the opening of the Quebec Legislature  concerning advancement on education-,  al projects in the Province of Quebec.  Sir Lomer says tbat special inducements are to be offered'for the engagement of male teachers by the different  school boards, and that, in tms way, ne  hopes to be able to see education in  the, country parishes equal that of the  cities. At present as soon as a school  teacher procures a diploma he or she  invariably moves westward. Sir Lomer  says now that, he will have work for  them to do near home, and that the  expanding west must look elsewhere  for Its supply. ,  The speech from the Throne also  contained another announcement of  considerable interest to the whole of  Jaiiada. It was that the Government  had pledged itself to the futherance  of the good reads movement, and that  ^arge sums of money- would, be asked  to build up and maintain public highways.  ><   *    *  Excitement and -interest in the  rfoundstich battle between anarchists  and London police some time ago received new impetus here when it became known that orders had been issued from Scotland "iard to all, the  police and-detective departments-in  Canada to keep a sharp watch on all  suspicious characters in their districts,  and to be particularly careful to see  to it that they were under direct surveillance for the few weeks prior to  -he Coronation. As a result of this the  Dominion Police, . nder Colonel Percy  Sherwood, have been most active and  a large force has been sent down to  the boundary to board and inspect  trains coming in trom the ocean ports  of the United States to Canada. This  .vork was being done quietly and effectively, but this week Inspector  Parkinson held up a part} of four  at Rouse's Point, coming into Montreal  from New York. There were two  women and two men in the party. The  inspector told them, in bis usual quiet  manner, that they would not be able  to enter Canada. One of tbe wometi,  becoming angry drew a long hat pin  and tried to stab the inspector.  The consequent small riot in the  sleeping car aroused the curiosity of  the passengers and the story leaked  out. Later, the Inspector announced  that never before had the authorities  turned back so many people, under one  circumstance or another, as in the past  two weeks,  .��������� . *    ������  If there is any faith to be put in  figures, Canada's parole system of dealing with criminals has proved its value  during the eleven years it has been in  operation. Dominion Parole Officer  Archibald, in the course of an inspection trip at St. Vincent de Paul penitentiary, said that, of the three thousand and seventy-two prisoners who  have been released from the penitentiaries on parole during that period,  two thousand have justified their right  to freedom by living the lives of self-  respecting and industrious citizens,  nine hnudred and ninety nine are  still reporting to the authorities, and  only sixty-two have found their way  back "to the courts through the lures of  their old habits and activities.  .   .   .  There Is not very much use trying  to play the role of stock market Bear  these dayS. The tendency is all the  other way and the Bulls have the call  every time. Times are too prosperous  just now to think or talk of declining  values. The Bulls even say tbat  Canada is getting to the stage where  a set back across the border would not  effect us to any marked extent.  Three years ago, it wiil be remembered, there was next door to a financial panic in the United States and although Canada was enjoying an unexampled era of prosperity the adverse  influences from abroad called a bait  and there was a general readjustment  of values in consequence of the interference to the wave of prosperity at  home. As Canada grows bigger and  stronger financially, the more she becomes independent of what financial  turmoil Uncle Sam may see fit to permit within his borders.  The enormous inflow of capital from  different parts of the globe, but particularly from the land of John Bull,  shows no sign of cessation and with  the development cf our own great resources keeping on apace it looks i as  though the preachment of the Bull  element ought not to be far wrong,  even if it does appear a little over-  enthusiastic to the. moderate man in  the "Street."  Several things have occurred within the past few months to give additional strength to Canadian credit  abroad and nothing could have been  finer in that respect that the recent  demonstration of the wonderful earning capacity of the Canadian Pacific  Railway as shown by the decision'of  the directors within tbe past few days  to place the stock on a 10 per cent  dividend basis.  The completion of the new power  plant of the Sherbrooke Railway and  Power Company has drawn Montreal  capitalists attention away from their  street railway in the city to a promising public utility .enterprise in the  Eastern Townships. The Sherbrooke  company is .only about a year old, it  having taken over the old Sherbrookjr 7'~  Street Railway Jast year, but already-   '  it is commencing to showv the fruits  of labor and thought inthe manner in  which it is grappling with the power    /  and  transportation problems  ot tbe  townships.   Mr. Clarence McCuaig, on  whose shoulders the principal-bu-2Ci    /  of reorganization of the company ha������  ���������  fallen, and whose energy has been re-  -  sponsible for getting tbe plant into  tbe excellant running order it ia In  today, is now figuring on ever larger    >.  plans with  a view to giving quick  transportation and power to the city ot '������=  Sherbrooke and the surrounding district.   With this end in view he has  purchased three water powers   on the    ' -  Magog river and has commenced ..development.  The result will be that the ,-  townships will eventually have their  own hydro-electric power.  Another concern has been a great  winner In the stock market within  the past few days. This is Laurentlde  Paper of which Sir William Van Home  is president and R. B. Angus, C. R.  Hosmer and James Ross are among  the directors. The $1,600,00 of common -  stock which only a short time ago had -  a market value of less than $2,400,000 ". '  has appreciated in value to the extent  of between $900,000 and aa the stock  is concentrated for the moat part comparatively few hands the profit can be  estimated at a glance. The company  has ' been making great profits and  some scheme is now under consideration for giving tbe shareholders a larger proportion than they are now receiving from the already handsome  g per cent dividend rate. It will thus  be seen that the C. P, R. millionaires  are very much in the"swim1'arid* are  rapidly adding to their already, immense fortunes.* , . ���������   . ,  AN IDEAL SUBSTITUTE.

WEATHER PHENOMENA.  Air Resistance in Traveling.''  Moving at the rate of twenty miles  an hour, the air offers a resistance of  two pounds avoirdupois to every  equare foot of surface exposed to it;  that is, it takes a push of two pounds  to every square foot to force the air  out of the way. This resistance increases rapidly as the speed increases.  If the raws is foil/ miles, the lesistance  is th square of twice that caused by  the speed above mentioned, or eight  pounds to the square foot; and if it is  sixty miles per hour, it is the square  of three times, or eighteen pounds to  the square foot; if a hundred miles  an hour, the pressure will be fifty  pounds per square foot. The adult  human body, taking clothing into account, presents a surface of about five  square feet; and if it wei'e not that it  was rounuou out! Cud ^JJlc^ occur behind it, it would have to support a  pressure of forty-five pounds when going at sixty miles an hour.  Some Simple Weather Phenomena.  Air has weight, but it takes seven or  eight hundred gallons of it to balance  one gallon of water. It is lighter when  warm, because it expands with'increased temperature. It is also lighter when moist, for a given amount of  the vapor of water, weighs but little  more than half as much, as an equal  quantity of dry air. Air is also heavier  when compressed, as when in an air  pump, or near the surface of the earth.  The eWiflht.  The air is four hundred and fifty or  five hundred miles deep, fully half of  which is '.:. the first three and a half  miles, and three-quarters in the first  six miles. At sea level there Is a pers-  sure of mor than a ton to the square  foot  Velocity of the Wind.  The velocity of the wind is expressed  in miles^ it travels per hour. A very  light breeze, Just nough to stir the  leaves on the trees has a velocity of  about two miles per hour, a smaller  breeze which cools us in summer,  travels at the rate of from five to seven  miles an hour. A fresh breeze is traveling at the rate of ten to twelve miles  eling at the rate of ten to twelve miles,  a strong one from fifteen to twenty, a  high wind from twenty-five to thirty,  and a gale from thirty-five to forty. A  hurricane may have winds traveling  from seventy-five to nearly one hundred mlleB per hour.  Fore* of tho Wind.  , The force which the wind exerts differs with tbe form, size and position of  the surface exposed to It. ji rule which  gives a fair average value, is that the  pressure in pounds to the square foot  may be obtained by squaring tbe velocity tn miles per hour and dividing by  200." This would give a fourteen miles  per hour a pushing force of one pound  to each square foot directly opposed to  it. Fr twenty miles an bur tbe pressure would be two pounds to each  square foot; for forty miles, eight  pounds, for sixty miles, eighteen  pounds and so on.  Matter has three physical states, tbe  /r.

To change a body from ne of the other  is made by the addition or subtraction  of heat. To change a body from solid  to liquid, as when ice or iron is melted; or from liquid to gas, as when alcohol or water is ^evaporated���������heat  must be added. When the change is  the other way, heat is given out. It always takes the same amount of heat  to make any and'all these changes in  the same substances.  The ordinary natural substances remain unchanged through the whole  range of weather temperature. Iron,  rocks and soil are unmelted; all the  gases of the atmosphere rmain gaseous  throughout the weather changes. Oxygen, nitrogen and carbonic acid gas  requires enormously lower tempera:  ture than the weather makes to change  them  Water.

The change from water to ice occurs  at 32 degrees, but from ice to water  it may occur at. any temperature.  There is always water vapor in the air.  Water is the carrier and distributor of  heat in the atmosphere.  Dew.  Dew is condensed vapor. When the  Bky Is clear and the free surface, such  as stone, soil, plants and other things  in connection with the ground, are not  heated by the sun, they become chilled.  If at the same time the air is still it  becomes chilled by contact with' the  rock or other bodies and^deposlts upon  it the condensed moisture. Dew falls  when tbe air Is calm and the sky clear.  It is most likely to fall, and is most  copious at daybreak, which is the coolest and calmest part of the day. It  cannot occur where the sun's rays have  free access, for they heat tho solid objects until they'are warmr than the  air; nor can it occur unless there is  enough moisture in the air to give a  dew point above the temperature of  the bodies chilled.  Frosts.  Frost is simply dew deposited at  temperature below freezing. When a  very moist air sweeps across small  bodies; such as branches of trees,  which are below tbe freezing point,  the frost may continue to be deposited  on tbem until, tbey become so loaded  as to, be broken down.  Clouds or Fog.  A fog is a cloud at the ground, and  a cloud is a tog high up ln the air.  Both cloud and fog are produced by  cooling the air below tbe dew-point, or  forcing the moisture into the air until  super-saturated. Tbe latter is tbe process by which a locomotive makes  clouds or fogs on a small scale. The  chief way which clouds are formed is  by ascending currents of air.  There are three fundamental forms  of clouds: Cirrus, Cumulus and Stratus. Tbe Cirrus or vail cloud is fine,  feathery, of a silky texture, and lustre,  and so thin that stars can easily be  seen through It. It is tbe highest of  the clouds, being from three to ten  mlleB above us. Circus clouds move  most rapidly of all tbe clouds; its average rate is eighty miles per hour, being sixty-three ln summer and ninety-  Snow.

The Cumulus cloud is very white  above, unless tinted with gold by tbe  rising or setting sun, and rounded,  domed, or anvil-shaped. It Is the thickest ot al tbe clouds, generally standing  isolated from tbe rest, flat and dark at  the bottom. Its usual height above the  earth.Is one mile. It usually stands  still, but when it doeB travel goes at a  rate of twenty to thirty miles an hour.  It is a warm weather cloud form..  The Stratus or blanket cloud is the  third form. It is darker ln color than  the others, a dark gray with sometimes  a brownish tinge. It forms a layer or  blank*: of no great thickness, pretty  evenly spread over a larger or smaller  portion of the sky. Seen near the horizon it seems but a hand, but when  above the observer it spreads like a  blanket, thick enough to shut out the  sun and stars. It floats nearest the  surface of the earth of any of the  clouds, averaging from a quarter to a  third of a mile above the surface. It is  only a bank of fog elevated above our  heads. It is the cloud of melancholy  weather, of winter and of show.  Precipitation.  Precipitation is caused by the moisture which forms the elements of the  clouds, gradually or suddenly growing  in weight sufficiently to bring them to  the ground, before they can be again  evaporated. The resistance which the  air offers to their passage keeps them  from falling too fast. The drop soon  acquires such velocity that the air prevents its going any faBter. The larger  and heavier the drop the greater. Is  the speed at which it falls, but it is  never great enough to injure anything.  Were it not for the resistance of the  air, a' drop' of watr, "notwithstanding  that it is fluid, fallire- fromth������?heliht  of half a mile would be as dangerous as  a billet.-'7:r . \..      .  Y.  A school for tuberculosis patients,  in which they may learn how to get  well���������that is the idea of a sanatorium  advanced by Dr. David L. Sohn, of  New York, in "American Medicine"  (New York). We can isolate only a  small number of consumptives, Dr.  Sohn says. There are a great army  of them, and our few sanatorlums  are unable to combat the disease. We  ~jst educate these whom we can not  treat���������teach them how to live so that  they may vanquish the malady by  themselves*. Isolation and education  are his watchwords and the greater  of these two is .education���������the greater  because it must be our weapon with  hundreds of thousands, while isolation  can be effective with comparatively  few. We read:  "Let us isolate those whom we can  and'educate those whom we can not!  In order to accomplish the best results under the present trying circumstances, I advocate the establishment  of schools for consumptives, in which  the patient will in three weeks derive  the benefit of a practical course of instruction at a sanatorium' school devoted solely to this purpose.  "The sanatorium school I have in  mind can be built within the city limits or in the suburbs. It should be an  institution built and equipped as a  modern sanatorium for the cure of  consumption, suited for open air, rest,  hygienic and dietetic treatment, and  should be under the supervision of  trained physicians and nurses who  will carry out the most approved  treatment of tuberculosis. There the  patients win not only be kept and  treated, but they will themselves be  instructed in the various phases of  sanatorium treatment. There' they  will be trained how to take care of  themselves after they leave the sanatorium school. I may venture to say  that after a course of three weeks in  such an institution, a patient will be  well able to take care of himself no  matter where he may go to continue  bis treatment for an ultimate cure.  Furthermore, by these instructions, infection to other persons through Ignorance and carelessness will be made almost Impossible. We know tbat tbe  untrained and uncared-for ( consumptive constitutes a great menace to bis  home and workshop. Very frequently  he causes additional lives to be ^sacrificed because his presence and bis ignorance constitute -a dangerous environ ment for bis associates."  We are beginning to learn, Dr. Sohn  goes on to say, tbat it 1b unnecessary  to go to the mountains to seek a cure  for tuberculosis. Pure air is essential,  but^w..herever we can find it constantly we are reasonably sure to obtain quick results, provided the patient understands bis disease, or is  under tbe supervision ot a trained  physician.   To quote further:  "It may Interest you to know tbat  in every locality where sanatoria for  consumptives are maintained the morality from tuberculosis has markedly  decreased among the villagers jiince  the establlsbmenTof liuch institutions.  Tbe reduction in this morality is to be  explained by tbeir imitation, voluntary  and unconscious, of tbe cleanliness  and sanitary precautions practised ln  tbe institutions in their midst. Since  a sanatorium has such a good influence  upon the' inhabitants outside the Institution, what are we to expect from  those inhabitants inside the institution who are anxious to be cured?  A graduate from a sanatorium school  will be able to go to any locality in  the vicinity of his home where he can  find pure air. He may even remain.in  his very home where he may frequently be seen by relatives and friends  who will inspire him with the hope  and confidence so essential to the consumptive. Thus, this intelligent near-  at-home treatment proves more advantageous too In that it does away  with the homesickness and worry  which are so often a great rindrance  to recovery."  ������'  A Large Shipment of Music Now on Hand should. ^  have been delivered for Holiday Trade so to make  A  entire Clearance we will sellat a Great Reduction     5  '. 7 ' -r  Cowan's Music Store  2315 Westminster Avenue  *********** 1**************0****************+**+****SS  B.
